Drawn in the Mallala pits. '49 Talbot-Lago Grand Prix world champ model. Owner Vern Schuppan. Car has since been freshened. Love watching Vern (LeMans winner) hustling this thing, especially in the rain.

Bill Colburn had many different builds of the competition coupes from the early days of So Cal drags. When we saw him at Lion’s Dragstrip in late 58, he already had one of the loudest, fastest competition coupes in the whole area. It was impressive and we could not get enough of listening to that black primered coupe. The stance was one of a kind and it was intimidating just sitting in the pits.

My brother and I did not see these versions of the Colburn Glaze Competition Coupes. They were from late 1957 and 58. It was a Chassis Research dragster frame with coupe body bolted on for entry into the Competition Coupe class.
Colburn Glaze History
Our first time seeing the Bill Colburn Competition Coupe was at Lion’s Dragstrip in mid 1959. It made believers out of those that thought only FED racers could be so impressive and fast.
Colburn Glaze Lions 1959
In late December of 1959, my brother and I went to riverside raceway to see one of the biggest drag race meets of all time. The biggest names in drag racing from all over the USA came out West to compete. It takes a lot of gumption and knowledge to go against the top FED racers for the top eliminator spot. The blue #5 Competition Coupe did its best to beat the top racer from So Cal.

Nice start fellas.
Here's something I made in response to another HAMB thread on the legendary Dave Bell.
Someone raised the question if anyone had ever actually lettered their tires like in Daves cartoons.
I couldn't find any examples doing a search so I tried some Photoshop manipulation on a couple of pictures which led to the idea to try to bring one of Daves toons to life. Dave was an incredible artist and was an inspiration to so many of us growing up in that era.
Henry Hirise comes to mind...
I was surprised he penned a number of Hambers Rides in his works not to mention so many knowing him...
Nice Tribute @Vonzemo...
The looking forward to the Friday art show is really something to look forward to. you guys jump start my Fridays.
Thanks for what you do.
Very old stuff!
...just a bunch of random stuff...
Thanks a lot Stogy !
Yes I too was impressed by the HAMBers that were featured and immortilized in Daves work.
Goes to show, you never know who your rubbin elbows with here in the HAMB clubhouse.
BTW, here's an example of Daves righteous original that I referred to in making this.
Car? What car?
